Here’s another oldie-but-a-goodie; the Pan-Pacific Alliance.
It’s currently -25°C here (down to -36 with windchill), so here’s a wintry-themed OGRE image from the PanPacAlliance Combat Photography section:
Welcome to the Antarctic Disputed Zone. Keep warm, everyone!
Mike’s OGRE/GEV Page was a good OGRE site from a few years back. No activity for quite a while, but here are useful some links:
He also posted a number of map extensions and photos of his minis. Worth checking out.
I had never taken a look at the difference in OGRE miniature castings… Compare below two Mk. Vs – the left one is a “modern” Mk. V while the one on the right is from Martian Metals in the ’80s:
(The right one is actually labeled “Mk. Vb” by Martian Metals. Misprint, or alternate chassis?)
Check out the stylings on the front of the OGREs; the Martian Metals version has a pointed ‘hull’ that looks particularly cool. The newer casting has a lot more details, and the external missiles are housed in armour.
There’s an entire blog called Martian Metals OGRE Mk. Vb (that’s where I swiped the photos from). You should check it out.
Happy New Year, all! For those who have not stumbled upon this before…
Behold the Mk. V LEGO OGRE from Dan Efran:
He’s got three pages of LEGO OGRE awesomeness:
(These haven’t been updated since ’11, but that doesn’t matter since both LEGO and OGRE are timeless.)
There’s also a cool thread on BGG with several different designs.
